One of my dreads is coming loose in the middle.

I'm pretty new to this, like I just started yesterday. So I did two last night and this morning, my second one is coming loose in the middle. It's tight at the base and then there's a spot in the middle that is completely undone and then it's kind of a loose dread the rest of the way down. What should I do?

I started twisting and ripping. The first one I did came out great and it's nice and tight. The second one was a little hollow feeling yesterday and now today it's almost come undone and just looks like shit.

I'm having the same problem. I was too embarrassedto post a new thread. So here's what I did. I had my hair done using the twist method. And upon stumbling on this site I've vowed not to go back to the salon to get it re twisted. Well some are unraveling completely.my hair is frizzy'ish. What I supposed to do :(Ps anyone else have the problem of waking up and your hair on the sides are flat ? I wake up 20min earlier now to mess with hair to get it all evened out.
